Tripadvisor ought to have a rating between 'average' and 'very good'! This restaurant is above average (for Syracuse) but not very good. The wines, and the wine waiter, were better than average. The food was heavy - the pasta with shrimp and sea urchin was...More

Food was fantastic, with great choices. And delicious wine. It's quite grand, so it's celarly where the great and good of Syracuse go for a night out. But service is impeccable and food and wine terrific.

Came for a dinner. This restaurant has all of the quirky stuff expected of Michelin-star restaurant, yet when it comes to taste, I was not 100 percent on board. The food was overall good, though I tried the swordfish with wallnut filling and it was...More
